As we noted a little while ago, if San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Singletary was being literal-minded when he famously bellowed "I want winners!" then he's likely to be disappointed. A gambling Web site recently pegged the Niners' odds of winning the Super Bowl at 55-to-1; this means that Sigletary has about the same odds of reaching into a shuffled deck of cards (with jokers) and whipping out the ace of spades.

Perhaps this has something to do with the 49ers' quarterback situation. Barring family members, no one took Shaun Hill or Alex Smith in the first eight rounds of a fantasy draft. But, should both QBs be injured (or really stink), the team has declared they will be replaced by a man with no professional experience whatsoever, 22-year-old Nate Davis.

We ran this bit in our most recent Friday Morning News Quiz, but it warrants repeating. Can you identify Nate Davis? Click the link and find out.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
